Winter Springs, Fla. — August 3, 2010 — EZYield.com, the originator of automated online distribution management solutions for the worldwide hospitality industry, announces that it has completed an interface connection with one of the hospitality industry’s foremost hotel management systems, the SMS|Host product suite from PAR Springer-Miller Systems, Inc.
This interface enables hotels using PAR Springer-Miller’s best-in-class hospitality management system to benefit from EZYield.com’s RezDelivery technology, which facilitates the automated transfer of reservations booked via online travel agents and other channels directly to the SMS|Host system. EZYield.com boasts an impressively comprehensive and growing roster of RezDelivery-capable channels, putting SMS|Host client hotels in front of a far greater number of potential guests.
The seamless connectivity that EZYield.com provides between third-party channels and SMS|Host systems means hotel reservations agents no longer have to worry about input errors when manually transferring reservations booked from an EZYield.com partner channel. The interface eliminates common mistakes such as reservations booked to the wrong property, incorrect guest information and omitted stay details, offering hoteliers true opportunity cost gains from time saved and customer service crises averted.
“EZYield.com’s certified interface with SMS|Host allows hotel reservation agents to spend more time dealing directly with guests, rather than focusing their attention on data entry,” says Victor Vesnaver, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing of PAR Springer-Miller Systems. “This will help improve ADR by giving reservation agents more time to offer additional services and to take care of customers’ needs. Moreover, data entry problems and lost reservations will become a thing of the past.”
Furthermore, the interface represents a noteworthy milestone in the never-ending industry effort to create the perfect guestroom inventory distribution platform, says Ed St. Onge, CEO of EZYield.com. “This is a big leap toward finally closing the distribution circle for hotels, whereby a single system can be the source of record for all reservations and the origination point for availability, rates and inventory,” St. Onge says.
EZYield.com and PAR Springer-Miller worked collaboratively on the development, testing and implementation of the XML reservation delivery integration to ensure that it meet the needs of their knowledgeable client base. Extensive quality-assurance testing by both companies has certified the integration as stable, efficient and secure.
